A number of studies are empirical testing of the formulated hypotheses by quantitative methods of analysis. The analysis of the literature suggests that development of effectuation theory is at the stage of transition from nascent to intermediate state, which is characterized by a focus on conceptual works and increasing number of empirical studies. Keywords: effectuation, causation, cognitive logic, entrepreneurial decisions, literature analysis.
